There is nowhere I’m happier than amid flowers and herbs growing. I love being out in the sunshine when the patio is in bloom.
The patio is lush with greenery and color. So I’ll just invite you in to see.
My Lovely Patio:
Driftwood As Planter:
My piece of driftwood first came from Dallas and then to Tyler.
Then to the little blue house in a moving van, and then to the apartment. You will see that I’ve planted two more plants in little pockets.
See them arranged here and there at the back of the fence? They are the green backdrop for all my blooming flowers.
Serenity In The Garden:
Being in a garden brings me serenity. I sit and listen to the various birds chirping.
Once in a bit I’ll get up and wander around the plant areas to see if there’s something new I missed on a prior go round.
I of course don’t have all the fancy things I had in Texas. There is no pond with a surging waterfall. No pavilion with overhead fan. No gazebo out-fitted with lounging chairs.
But still I have plants and flowers. And a place to enjoy them. And that makes me happy.
Seeing their stems reach up toward the sun and open up into a gorgeous explosion of color makes me smile.
Feeling Grateful In My Garden:
It is a privilege to be able to enjoy these flowers. To walk past a plant and have the perfume released by my brushing against it.
To look out the bedroom window as dusk falls, and see the birds flitting about from pot to pot.
